    Too Much Narnia for One Family?

    The title is a bit bizarre, but it fits.

    I've always loved the named Lucy and it's not even an uncommon name that people would want to dislike because it's unusual.
    However my name is Susan (no,there are no Edmunds or Peters in the extended family) so would it be weird if I named a future daughter Lucy?

    Of course I don't plan to have kids for a while,so my taste in names might change a little, but I'm curious. Would that be too much Narnia for one family? Especially because I'm not opposed to naming a son Henry Caspian? I didn't pick Lucy purposely for the Narnia connection although if I named a son Henry Caspian(I do like Caspian for the Narnia connection) it would appear that way.

    Thoughts?

    That is 'a lot of Narnia' but I don't think it matters! Lucy is a simple, classic and beautiful name, and Henry Caspian is a stunning combo. I don't think there is a problem unless by chance their father's name is Edmund

    But the older brother's name is Peter not William. Am I wrong?

    And I think using Caspian is a middle name is fine and I doubt anyone would even realize the connection with Lucy.

    They're all fairly common names and I'm not sure many people outside Nameberry would make the connection (I know I didn't).

    Whoops you're right. The actor that plays Peter is named William, and I mixed the two up. Thank you!
